9 Children haven’t changed! “A characteristic of the normal child is he doesn't act that way very often” “You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance” “Children seldom misquote. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said”

10 My favourite quote “Children today are tyrants. They contradict their parents, gobble their food, and tyrannize their teachers. “ Socrates, BC

11 What are the kids like then? 95% are fantastic 4% have problems 1% are ‘orrible
